New Bentley Bentayga Pikes Peak Limited Edition revealed

Bentley Bentayga Smashes Pikes Peak SUV Record

R, and Rhys Millen hustled a lightly modified Bentayga up the 156 corners of Pikes Peak in 10:49.9 - a handy 1:45.71 quicker than the last Production SUV-class record, set by a Range Rover Sport in 2014. Bentley attributes the Bentayga's 600-hp W12 engine, adaptive air suspension, active electric 48V anti-roll control and carbon ceramic brakes for helping it achieve the record.

Pikes Peak veteran Rhys Millen was at the wheel. And to help this yellow-green beast breathe better, the Bentayga got a production-specification Akrapovic exhaust upgrade, and the list of other modifications including Pirelli's stickiest DOT-approved tires, racing seats, a roll cage and a fire suppression system.

To celebrate the record-breaking run, Bentley is today announcing a new Limited Edition Bentayga, strictly limited to just ten cars.

Only minimal changes were made to a standard production Bentayga in order to comply with the rules.

Limited to just 10 cars, the Pikes Peak gets a cosmetic package which mimics the vehicle which broke the record.

Beyond that, the air suspension, 48V anti-roll system and Pirelli tyres came straight from the production vehicle. 10 specially outfitted cars will bear the Pikes Peak Bentayga name and badging.

The Black Specification is included, replacing all exterior chrome with gloss black components and adding a carbon fibre splitter, side skirts, diffuser and rear spoiler.

Inside, the cabin is trimmed with Beluga leather, featuring Alcantara inserts and contrasting lime accents. The auto gets a Pikes Peak logo on its carbonfibre fascia and numbered treadplates. The twin turbo unit produces 600bhp and 900nm, sending drive to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The Bentayga Sports Exhaust and Touring Specification pack complete the auto.

The Pikes Peak edition Bentayga will be available to be ordered both in the United States and Europe from August onwards.
